Question about Peas and Appearance of Reaction
My son has peanut allergy and he's 16 months old. So far his only visible reaction has been hives.
A few days ago I gave him some Progresso Beef and Barley soup, knowing that it contains peas and we hadn't done peas in awhile. I just watched him carefully and I didn't notice any sort of problem.
Then the next evening we gave him the rest of that can of soup (just to let you know it wasn't a separate can, had refrigerated the remaining soup to save).
We drained a lot of the liquid so that he could pick up some to feed himself with, so I don't know if this was just skin irritation. But he had a red patch under his chin. I saw no irritation on his hands and no hives of any kind. Would this be considered a reaction at all or just irritation from perhaps some acidity in the broth?
I wondered if the peas in it could be responsible but these days I'm so on guard that I don't know if I'm overanalyzing!
